As reported earlier, a formal religious ceremony (pooja) was held in Chennai yesterday (April 4th), which marked the commencement of the sequel to superhit flick Chennai 600028.
Directed by Venkat Prabhu, Chennai 600028 revolved around the lives of young men, united by the passion for the game of cricket. The film had also explored themes like love, friendship and betrayal.
In its sequel however, the Biriyani director will portray the characters of Chennai 600028 as middle-aged men, a press release said.
Going by this statement, it can be safely deduced that the movie will handle more serious issues like relationships while showcasing the love for cricket from a middle-aged person's point of view.
The shooting for Chennai 600028 part 2 will begin from April 11th. Speaking to the media, Vaibhav Reddy, who has been inducted into cast said, "We will begin the shoot from April 11. We will be shooting in Chennai for about 10 days and will then head to Courtallam-Tenkasi side for a 30-day schedule. It feels great to be back with the team."
The rest of the cast including Jai, 'Mirchi' Shiva, Premji Amaran, Nithin Sathya, Vijay Vasanth, Aravind Akash and Vijayalakshmi have been retained by Venkat Prabhu, who is an ardent cricket fan. Along with Vaibhav Reddy, Mahat too, have been included in the cast.
Praveen KL has been roped in to take care of the editing bit. While Yuvan Shankar Raja will compose music for the flick, Stunt Silva will handle the action sequences.
Stay tuned for further updates.
